Hagg lake

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

The Scoggins Creek Arm of Hagg Lake (bobcat)

Description

Henry Hagg Lake has been in existence since 1975, when the dam was constructed across Scoggins Creek by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. Water from the lake is used by four cities in Washington County and also to augment the flow of the Tualatin River. When the reservoir is full, the surface area comes to over 1,100 acres and can reach 110 feet at its deepest point.

The lake is a very popular recreation spot for fishermen and families and is regularly stocked with rainbow trout. There are several picnic areas around its shores. Recent drowning deaths attest to the fact that there are sudden drop offs close to the shoreline, so those with small children and non-swimmers need to exercise extreme caution when in the water.

Henry Hagg was a local dairy farmer of the early 20th century who was also active in promoting the interests of agriculture in Washington County.
